Available to: all students

Schedule: one semester

SPECIAL NOTES: This semester-long course must be paired with another arts course before graduation in order to fulfill Stevenson’s diploma requirement. To fulfill the “f” arts admissions requirement for the UC and Cal State schools, the second course should also be in the theater discipline. Alternatively, students engaged in two seasons of theater productions in a year are eligible to petition for a semester’s grade and credit in the theater arts, which, in conjunction with this course, would fulfill both Stevenson’s one-year arts requirement and the “f” arts requirement for the UC and Cal State schools.

In one semester, students with absolutely no experience in acting become actors! Learn how to build self-confidence in public speaking, collaborate with others, play games that develop your imagination and creativity, and explore voice and speech exercises that make it easier for you to express yourself. Students perform many different character types through role-playing, monologues, and scene work from contemporary plays. Come join in the fun of the theater arts—it starts right here in this class!
